"In wetlands subject to large water-level fluctuations, most of the species in these wetlands have long-lived seed that can persist in their seed banks for decades. When these wetlands go dry, all of the emergent species become re-established simultaneously (van der Valk and Davis 1978). The long-term persistence of clonal emergent species in wetlands with fluctuating water levels is due to the presence of their seeds in seed banks of these wetlands." (van der Valk 2006:71)
